The search for a new manager at Manchester United goes on and now we have a new name on the list. Former Chelsea manager and current Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s name has emerged as a potential candidate to replace Ralf Rangnick in the job. But why? Let’s have a look at it in more detail.
Carlo Ancelotti To Be New Manager Of Manchester United?
After sacking Ole Gunnar Solsaker in 2021, United showed patience and decided to wait for the season to end. Their favorite candidates were PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax’s Erik Ten Hag. However, both were in charge of teams which made it tough to get them during the season.

As a result, United’s board appointed Ralf Rangnick as the interim manager and also gave him a crucial role in consultancy. The move made it clear that United are keen to sign a long-term manager and are not in hurry.
Now, with a new CEO on board, United have started their search for a potential new manager. But this, they look more ready than ever before. The name of Carlo Ancelotti emerged as a potential replacement for Ralf Rangnick for one season if the team fails to bring their favorite candidates to Old Trafford.
Simply said, if Mauricio Pochettino or Ten Hag refuses to sign for Manchester United at the end of the season, United will try to get Ancelotti for one season and will wait for their long-term candidates.

Ancelotti left everyone amazed with his new stint at Real Madrid. With some new talents on the team, he managed to give Real Madrid a flying start in the league and are now clear favorites to win La Liga. However, they’re struggling right now in the Champions League as they trail by 1-0 to PSG.
As of now, Ancelotti’s team has performed well and the Italian had done a great job shaping the team. Moreover, not to forget Ancelotti has managed some of the best teams in the world with the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and AC Milan.

Ralf Rangnick’s career as Manchester United manager depends a lot on the upcoming few weeks. Although the manager has done a great job to bring some spark in the play style, the team has failed to perform consistently.
In the upcoming weeks, United will face Manchester City, which will clearly decide who has the edge to win the league.
